Recently, a video of former England captain Joe Root went viral on social media. In fact, in the test match against New Zealand (NZ), Joe Root, standing in Non-Strike, made his bat stand upright. This video went very viral on social media, after which cricket fans called Joe Root a ‘wizard’. Now, former Indian captain Virat Kohli has attempted to repeat this feat by Joe Root.
It is worth noting that the Indian team is playing a warm-up match against Leicestershire. In this match, former India captain Virat Kohli tried to keep the bat straight like Joe Root, but if he was unsuccessful, then he started trying on the other side. Virat Kohli put the bat down with his hand, but seeing him go down, he started to catch it. Actually Virat Kohli tried many times but failed. Finally, Virat Kohli got to his feet with the bat on the ground.
